EWN reporter Barry Bateman insults Julius Malema and sparks hilarious Twitter trend

Julius Malema twitter

Eyewitness News reporter Barry Bateman got South Africans on Twitter giggling after calling EFF leader Julius Malema a “p**s” at a press briefing on Tuesday.

Caught on camera, Bateman can be seen attempting to turn off his microphone after Malema is done speaking before he uses the derogatory word.

Subsequently, the moment trended as South Africans shared the video, and by Wednesday morning #poes took the number one spot on Twitter.

Some users gave the video a slight tweak for added humour too.

Eyewitness News, meanwhile, apologised on behalf of Bateman for his “foul language”.

Still, South Africans couldn’t help but find the entire scenario hilarious.

Barry Bateman has since changed his Twitter account to “protected” so that only approved followers can see his tweets.
